A colorful program on the new CD of Naomi Tamura ‘Un Amour de Piano’. A well chosen mix of German, French and Russian composers makes this album a composition of its own.
This first solo recording of Naomi Tamura was made in September 2010 in Haarlem. After a period of searching for the right hall and the right instrument Naomi decided to use her own Steinway D for the recording at the “Doopsgezinde” Church in Haarlem.
Michel Brandjes worked with Naomi on the instrument in order to prepare it for the recording. The character of the instrument is very warm, almost dark and that matches the quite transparent and diffuse acoustics of the church very well.
